Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021016
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021016

When I try to open file through composer using the New or Open buttons or menu
items, Mozilla stops responding and I have to Force-Quit it.  I can only open
files by finding them in the browser and using the Edit Page menu item.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Composer
2. Click on the "Open" button
3. Force-Quit Mozilla

Actual Results:  
Mozilla stops responding, shows up as red in the list of processes in the
Force-Quit window, and needs to be killed.

Expected Results:  
Mozilla should have presented the open file dialog, and later open the file
chosen .  This worked in version 1.1

WorksForMe using FizzillaCFM/2002103011 on 10.1.5. Rob, please retest using a
recent nightly build.

can you attach the file you are trying to open? worksforme isn't convincing
until we have a stab at the content. If you can't share the content, can it be
simplified or prepared in such a way that it still causes the problem but
doesn't share any information you would rather not share?

I think I figured out what it is.  When I'm at work, I have a network drive 
mapped from my powerbook to my unix home directory at work.  Later, when I'm
at home and can't have that drive mapped, when I try to use Composer (or save
files sometimes) I think Mozilla is trying to access the mapped drive for
whatever reason and is blocking on that.

Rob Meyers--Can you please retest with a newer build.  There were lots of key
changes that happened in Composer in early November which may have fixed this or
made it worse.

I don't see a problem with Open or New icons in my macho OSX build.
